Members of the site have access to association and club news and events, the ability to search for another golfer to play with, statistical tools and online event sign up!
eGolfer - An online dashboard designed to assist golfers in organizing their golf network through the use of widgets. The myGame dashboard has several views with a selected primary focus on scores or scoring statistics. Additionally, widgets will supplement the primary focus view with information relevant and personalized for the golfer. The golfer can also select an area of interest through the use of a Zip Code setting, which will then display news, events or weather applicable to the chosen area.

eRevision™ - An essential part of the USGA® Handicap System™ is that all golfers in a region have their Handicap Index® updated on regular and consistent basis. The revision schedule of when these changes occur may not be well known by all golfers and it may not be convenient to get to their club to get a new handicap sticker. Now golfers can receive eRevision™ via e-mail when the revised USGA Handicap Index becomes official.
